CVE-2013-6478 pidgin: DoS when rendering long URLs
Last modified: 2015-11-24 10:40:43 EST
It was found that pidgin crashed when a mouse pointer was hovered over a long URL. libX11 forcefully exits when Pidgin tries to create an exceptionally wide tooltip window.
Red Hat would like to thank the Pidgin project for reporting this issue.
